A Possession Of Marijuana Conviction Could Change Your Life — Protect Your Future
While anyone over the age of 21 can legally possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana for personal use under Colorado law, it is important to remember that you can still face criminal charges if you possess large amounts of the drug — not to mention marijuana is still technically illegal under federal law.
If you are found with more than 1 ounce of marijuana, it can mean more than just a slap on the wrist. It will cost you more than you think. The fact is that being convicted for possession of large amounts of marijuana carries two sentences. The first one is given by the court. The second, and oftentimes most severe, is given out again and again by prospective employers, lending institutions and professional organizations for a long time thereafter.
